Excellent but Noisy

  • Summary: I purchased an earlier version of this same UPS (that one only had a serial port output) eight years ago. It was still running just fine on the original batteries. It wasn't exactly silent but this new one is so much noisier. My old one died out on a hot day recently. Autopsy found that it had clogged completely with dust bunnies and burned out.
  • Pros: Full on-line (0 transfer time) sine wave UPS. Your equipment always runs off the inverter and never sees fluctuations in the line voltage and hence the 0 transfer time. Transfer time means when the power is out of range, your equipment is exposed to the fluctuations of the input line for that amount of (transfer) time before the battery backup cuts in and takes over. Also many UPS's generate square wave power instead of normal sine wave. Square waves are easy for digi...
  • Cons: Noisy fan (-1 star). I have a Cosmos 1000 case (that has sound proofing) so things were pretty quiet around my desk until I installed this UPS. The fan sounds like it's running at full RPMs even when the power output is shut off.

Nice UPS!

  • Summary: Saved me money by not having to buy a ups and a switching device separately.
  • Pros: Has 2 switchable loads that I can be accessed via several methods, the unit can be cycled as well. Works nice locally via usb and remotely via TCP/IP with the SNMPWEBCARD accessory. Power Alert software is easy to use and customizable. The unit is shutoff by holding the off button for about 4 seconds til you hear a beep. Did that other reviewer really read the manual, hmm?
  • Cons: None really. Fan is non issue if you have it 10 ft. from your desk or so. I have mine in a rack under a printer table at that distance. Most racks are not on people's desk or next to them so what gives?

  • Pros: Stays running all the time. Switches fast and reliably. Provides a lot of backup power.
  • Cons: My unit will not turn off. I have the manual and have gone over it a dozen times because there is no way I can power off this unit. Yes the fans run even when it is off... I installed one of these in a server rack about 60 miles away. Could not turn off the unit, so it was left on and transported the entire 60 miles while it happily beeped away. Maybe you can figure out how to turn it off. ?
